This year I was planning to go Ireland with my friends. We finalized the dates and hired a travel agent to visit more places in less time. Ireland is a lovely country packed with castles, rolling green hills, Guinness beer, beautiful sheer cliffs as well as friendly residents. Dublin is a lively city with great history. As the country is occupied with beautiful castles and landscapes, so I have the best time in here. It is easy t travel in Ireland due the country’s small size. I completely love this country. Ireland is a magical land full of history,fun, and wonder. Traveling with friends is always fun.
Arrival in Ireland:
Our group consists of 4 people, and we arrived at the airport from there we went to our hotel with the driver. We were very excited to explore the country. We met our other group members in the hotel and had dinner with them. The dinner was delicious and after enjoying the meal to its fullest, we went for a walk in the beautiful capital of Ireland.
The Historic Heart of Dublin:
The next morning the guide takes us for a walking tour in Dublin. We started off by exploring a bit of the center on foot. We stroll down O’Connell Street, passing the Millennium Spire as well as the General Post Office. The street was a good mix of old and new history together. We went to Trinity College which the Ireland’s most prestigious University and is located in the heart of the city center just south of the river Liffey. Next, we took a walk through Temple Bar which is Dublin’s social center. After visiting Temple, we went to see Christ Church Cathedral. In the evening we went to the Grand Canal that links Dublin’s River Liffey through the River Shannon.
Kilmainham Gaol and Ruins:
We went to Kilmainham Gaolon the third day of our day on our way out of Dublin. Then we’ll continue to the Green Plain of Tipperary where we visit the religious center that thrived in St. Patrick’s time. We also visit the haunting ruins of the Rock of Cashel. The day was full of thrill and excitement.
Kinsale and Charles Fort:
The next day we had a walking touring that brings Kinsale’s past to life. We also visited the Charles Fort which is amassive and revolutionary fort of its time. The days were running out very quickly, and we had a lot more to discover.
Cliffs of Moher and the Burren:
On the second last of our trip to Ireland, we drove through County Clare to the intense Cliffs of Moher that are more than 600 feet above the churning waters of the North Atlantic. The last stop for today was the tour the rocky moonscape of the Burren,and we learned about the unique ecosystem and ancients residents.
Galway and the Aran Islands:
This was our last day in Ireland and as the weather was clear so in the morning we hopped on board a ferry bound for the dazzling beauty of Inshore, which is the largest of the Aran Islands. We had all day to explore this island and enjoyed it thoroughly. We stayed there for a night and went back to Dublin the next day as we have to catch our flight.
I was very happy as we enjoy our trip in Ireland to the fullest. This was a phenomenal experience of traveling.
